Red Foxes and Washington DC

Yes, it's kind of a weird title I realize, but I don't blog very often, so I thought I would combine a couple posts in one.

First, the red fox den where I photographed the sub adult red fox last year is home to four adorable red fox kits this year. 
I have been out to photograph them about 15 times now and have been successful in photographing them on about 7 or 8 of those visits. You can see them on my wildlife photography website. The start of the gallery is from the first time that I saw them and each time I saw them I added on to the gallery so you can watch them get older and bigger. If you click on the "info" tab on the image thumbnail in my nature photography website, some information will come up about that picture.

Second, I was delighted and honored to discover that one of my prints was to be included in an exhibit in a Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC.

Nature's Best Windland Smith Rice International Awards chose one of my brown bear images for their photography exhibit in the National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC.

This gave me an excuse to fly out east to see my image and check out Washington DC. What an amazing city! 

Nature's Best Photography put on an amazing exhibit opening gala as they presented awards and opened the doors to the wildlife photography exhibit. You can see my image and the rest of the exhibit images here.
